TYLER, Texas (AP) -- Two Tulsa men charged with shooting a Texas trooper during a stop near Tyler wore body armor and fired about 100 rounds as they fled.

Both men were caught when their vehicle crashed.

37-year-old Ramon Ramos and 38-year-old Francisco Saucedo were in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Steven Stone is hospitalized in fair condition after last night's attack. He was shot in the left shoulder.

Stone managed to radio for help as the suspects drove away.

Ramos was treated and released. He's jailed on 14 counts of aggravated assault on a public servant, as well as a hold for immigration.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports Saucedo is hospitalized in serious condition and faces the same charges.

Bond for each man is $23-million.
